10. Say Yes to Now

When you say ‘YES’ to what is, you don’t need pain anymore. 

How much more pain do you need before you make that choice?” (Eckhart Tolle)

This question kind of stunned me when I first read it – How much more pain do I need before I choose to say YES to the present? You mean I am choosing pain?! I am asking for more pain?! WHAT?! 

When you put it like that, it seems impossible to choose pain. Another Cake or Death decision. https://youtu.be/rZVjKlBCvhg

It is really that simple and profound and challenging: 

Let go of the past, 

Surrender the future, 

Live in the present.
